Love it

Well, this week has been quite a ride-I’m not complaining mind you (the last time I said something about being too busy, I got laid off-so I’m zipping it folks), but there’s something to be said about moderation.

Moderation in work, play and diet.

I’m mentioning diet, because it seems to always be a topic of conversation in our family-especially as we‘re sitting down to a meal.

Is it the same in your home?

Our daughter-tells me that “I’m not pre-diabetic or anything, but I have some high insulin levels so the doctor’s putting me on some sort of insulin medication so that they’ll level out. That way I won’t get the munchies and eat high carb surgary foods.”

Huh?  Maybe it’s my sensible background-but your giving medicine to a person to stop the munchies?  It all seemed to make sense to our son, her brother.  “Of course mom, lots of doctors prescribe that medication for that purpose now-then you can finally lose weight.”

Meanwhile on the hubby camp-my handsome man is still maintaining the treadmill addiction and is proudly announcing to me every morning his weight.  He’s down from 185 to 168.8.  As long as he’s healthy and the quieter and less frequent snoring continue-I’m good.

Then there’s my parents-both diabetics with heart disease.  My mom is worn out from trying to get my dad to “follow the rules“.  Still a mom, even though my “baby” sister is nearing 48.

I’m not touching about how my sister goes on about food.


Me-I love cooking, I love trying and I love making sure it’s healthy.  I think you can easily have all three.

The challenge for me is that sometimes, as life is getting busier-is to give myself a break.  I want to continue to use my time in the kitchen as a creative outlet.  As if writing 9 hours a day isn’t enough of one.

As I’m writing this up for this week, I’m reminding myself that I’m set to leave in 2 weeks for my 30th anniversary cruise.  

And where will I be eating?  LOL-we’ve booked our rooms in the AquaClass area-couples only and our dining room focusing on what else?  Healthy, gourmet eats!

See you next Friday-and then, I’m out of here for a couple of weeks.

Love it
